Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors are professional grade, quality oil paints. Williamsburg is truly a painter’s paint, offering many specially selected colors such as a wide range of Cobalts and Cadmiums, Native Italian Earth colors and unique or unusual colors like Courbet Green, Montserrat Orange and Stil de Grain. In addition to traditional pigments, modern pigment colors are also offered, such as Quinacridones and Phthalos. Handmade in batches no larger than five gallons at a time, each color is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity of the particular pigment. Some colors feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth, preserving the wider range of differences oil paints had in the past.
